Job 37 (asv)

Job 37 (asv)

37:1Yea, at this my heart trembleth,

And is moved out of its place.

37:2Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice,

And the sound that goeth out of his mouth.

37:3He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven,

And his lightening unto the ends of the earth.

37:4After it a voice roareth;

He thundereth with the voice of his majesty;

And he restraineth not the lightnings when his voice is heard.

37:5God thundereth marvellously with his voice;

Great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

37:6For he saith to the snow, Fall thou on the earth;

Likewise to the shower of rain,

And to the showers of his mighty rain.

37:7He sealeth up the hand of every man,

That all men whom he hath made may know it.

37:8Then the beasts go into coverts,

And remain in their dens.

37:9Out of the chamber of the south cometh the storm,

And cold out of the north.

37:10By the breath of God ice is given;

And the breadth of the waters is straitened.

37:11Yea, he ladeth the thick cloud with moisture;

He spreadeth abroad the cloud of his lightning:

37:12And it is turned round about by his guidance,

That they may do whatsoever he commandeth them

Upon the face of the habitable world,

37:13Whether it be for correction, or for his land,

Or for lovingkindness, that he cause it to come. \\ \\

37:14Hearken unto this, O Job:

Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

37:15Dost thou know how God layeth his charge upon them,

And causeth the lightning of his cloud to shine?

37:16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds,

The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?

37:17How thy garments are warm,

When the earth is still by reason of the south wind?

37:18Canst thou with him spread out the sky,

Which is strong as a molten mirror?

37:19Teach us what we shall say unto him;

For we cannot set our speech in order by reason of darkness.

37:20Shall it be told him that I would speak?

Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?

37:21And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies;

But the wind passeth, and cleareth them.

37:22Out of the north cometh golden splendor:

God hath upon him terrible majesty.

37:23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out

He is excellent in power;

And in justice and plenteous righteousness he will not afflict.

37:24Men do therefore fear him:

He regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
